You can now join the private jet set…but only if you can find £28,000 pp for a 23-day grand tour
- Travel Titan tackles what has often been an exclusive market
- The £28,000 pp holiday will run from Rome to Rajasthan
- Guests will be transported to nine destinations during the 23-day grand tour
- Bosses think it will appeal to their market despite the high fees
Flying in a private jet has long been the preferred mode of air travel for celebrities and moguls.
But it’s now available for family holidays – assuming you can afford £28,000 per person.
Titan Travel, a firm that originally offered coach tours, is now tackling this exclusive market with the launch of its first private jet vacation.
On the Grand Tour from Rome to Rajasthan, guests will be transported from London to six countries and nine destinations in 23 days, with dedicated crew and guides. Luxury accommodation is provided and guests will enjoy a gourmet dinner, private VIP transfers and all entry visas and porterage included.
Despite the high price, the bosses are convinced that it will appeal to their market. Described as a “once-in-a-lifetime experience reminiscent of the golden age of travel”, the tour begins with guests being picked up from their homes and driven to the private jet terminal at Stansted Airport.

A director of operations and a dedicated team then take care of the 65 passengers of the Boeing 737-400.
Highlights of the trip include a private tour of the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel, a gala dinner at Samode Palace in Jaipur, and a night under the stars in the Jordanian desert.
Titan general manager Andy Squirrell said: “We knew there would be pent-up demand after the pandemic and we wanted to create something inspiring.
“The tour is in 2023 but the plane is half full with confirmed bookings and there is a mix of age groups, with couples, solo travelers and friends.”
For price comparison, hiring a four-seater private jet for the 40-minute flight from London to Manchester costs around £2,700. Aviation expert Gordon Smith describes the Titan concept as a more affordable air cruise or even an air safari. “It will appeal to discerning travelers who want to experience some of the world’s hidden gems without the hassle of crowded airports and overbooked airlines.”
He added: “I have no doubt other travel companies will be watching closely and marketing similar packages if Titan can make it work.”
